Response to LAUSD Counter Proposals

Late last night, UTLA and LAUSD had their 5th and last bargaining session of the current school year. The district rejected any reduction in the number of standardized tests students are subjected to, a rejection of any improvements to the working conditions of the Adult education teachers who play a pivotal role in training workers for our local economy, and a union-busting proposal to limit and prevent all concerted actions by UTLA.
